A Subdomain Name functions as an extension of a registered Domain Name, allowing you to send visitors to a different web address without having to register a new Domain Name.
For example, maindomain.com can have the Subdomains: shop.maindomain.com or blog.maindomain.com, depending on your goals. Creating a Subdomain helps you divide or organise your web content into distinct sections apart from your main site.
Create a Subdomain Name via cPanel
Follow the instructions below to access your hosting account and create a Subdomain:
- Log in to your cPanel using this link format: http://yourdomain.com/cpanel/
(Replace yourdomain.com with the main Domain Name connected to your Vodien hosting.)
- Once logged in, click on the Subdomains link under the Domains panel.
- Enter your desired Subdomain Name in the Subdomain field; e.g., for blog.maindomain.com, simply enter the word “blog” in this field.
Note: The Document Root will automatically be created in the directory. This is where the website files for your new Subdomain Name will be stored.
- Select the Domain Name to use from the drop-down list under Domain.
- Click on Create button to save the changes.
- A confirmation message will display on the next page. Click Go Back to view your added Subdomains, or create more.
A list of all your Subdomain Names will appear at the bottom of the page. You can click on the Manage Redirection link to specify a website to display, if preferred.
